Alpe d'Huez

Tommorrow is the day. It hasn't happened since 2004. A stage of the Tour de France finishes at Alpe d'Huez. Fourteen kilometers and 21 hairpin turns to the top. The official record is 36:50 set by the late Marco Pantani.

It will be a chaotic scene. One million fans will line the road.

Most likely the winner of the Tour de France will be decided tommorrow. No matter what happens though, it will be historic.
